Summary: Ladies, if you love the "original" Shalimar, then you will love this updated sexy version as well. My husband knows that I love Shalimar and decided to surprise me with a new bottle. Alas, his good intentions went awry in a lovely way.
Summary: Sorry! this is not "Shalimar" anymore! This is kind of beautiful, oriental perfum. I sniffed the old formulation of Shalimar and there is a big difference between two perfume. Old version more melancholic, dark and strong than new version.
Summary: Oh Shalimar...where have you been all my life? i knew i had started to enjoy smokey leathery vanillas with rose and powder...woods and lemons...and you come along with your heavenly blend of them all, with your jasmine and incense...and none of the others matter any more. this is the one.
Summary: Shalimar EDP starts strong--it's almost offensive, with a bracing citrus opening. You have to work for the beautiful part (which I like on a symbolic level--it's complex, moody, hard to love at first). But then something kind of magical happens.
